Top of Rail Treatment (TOR)

Fine dosing for smooth journey

Our decades of experience in the area of mobile top of rail treatment is reflected in the successful application by many transport services at home and abroad.

With our systems, which are installed in the vehicle, it is possible to dose lubricant containing solid matter through the curve and onto the rail surface, preferably the inside of the rail. The cornering squeal is reduced significantly through the treatment of the rail head, and in some cases is eliminated completely. Also rail wear and ripple formation are thwarted.

Advantages of REBS Top of Rail Treatment:

  • considerable reduction in noise and wear
  • avoidance of cornering squeal
  • avoidance of formation of ripples thanks to the high solid matter content
  • reduction of the friction coefficient (corresponding to the friction coefficient when rails are wet)
  • reduced lubricant consumption
  • system requiring low maintenance
  • long service life of the REBS system
  • tried-and-tested and quality-tested systems
  • user friendliness of entire system

Your benefits:

  • considerable reduction in noise (e.g. high-frequency corner squealing)
  • cost-savings thanks to reduction in wear
  • maximum process reliability
  • unbeatable efficiency
  • quickly pays for itself
  • high availability

Wheel Flange Lubrication (WFL)

Particularly good for sharp bends and curves.

Over 25 years ago REBS developed the wheel flange lubrication system based on the monotube system and up to today substantially shapes this technology.

The lubricant reaches the nozzles directly via the patented TURBOLUB® distributor. When the oil-air mixture is discharged fine drops emerge which wet the wheel flange. The lubricant is also transferred onto the subsequent wheels by the contact between the wheel and rail. The wear and annoying screeching noise in particular at bends and curves are thus reduced.

The developers in REBS have also found a solution for the restricted capacity of the compressors in vehicles. The lubrication systems are controlled and monitored via the freely programmable controller “Rematic”. The lubricant can thus be sprayed depending on the path, time or curve.
